choclab, first of all, congrats on the "new to you" boat.
Second of all, congrats on the hook up with the land/water and the decoys. Paying for access to land like that is probably worth 4 times what you paid for the boat. Heck, I'da bought the boat even though I didn't need it just so that I could have access to the land. There's nothing like a nice, uncrowded morning on private land.
I hope you get many years of service out of it. And if it helps put anything into perspective 4 years ago I paid $2,500 for a 1980 model 1448 mod-v with a 25 horse Yamaha. That was one helluva boat.
